Yesterday, the Elizabethtown Airport Board announced the activation of a new Instrument Landing System (ILS) at Addington Field. The $600,000 project was completely funded by the city of Elizabethtown.
“We want to thank the City of Elizabethtown for its support through funding,” stated Airport Board Chairman Don Wise.
The use of the ILS will improve safety by providing important visual cues for making a stabilizing approach, even when the ceiling and visibility are low, including at night or in bad weather.
This new system will help increase the airport’s capacity for pilot training.
